I'm loving gray and red!
What a gorgeous combination of colors!! The flower just pops off this cake!!
This is the fourth cake I made during my Craftsy Class. This cake showcases my signature flower and how to do an extruded design on a cake! - YES! - extruded fondant! NOT piped with royal icing!!
I can't pipe a lick! Well...I can...but it would NOT look like that!! It would look like a child did it!! I'm too much of a perfectionist to pipe anything unless I can be guaranteed it'll look good!! I know what I'm good at...and I try to stay within those limits!! :) Plus, I really do not like making royal icing and will try to stay away from it as much as possible! I don't know why...I think it's because I just can't figure out the right consistency! :)
So, using my wax paper technique I show you how to get that piped effect during the class, but with fondant!! - and get it to look GOOD!! There are SO many things you can do with extruded designs. The trick is getting them on your cake...but, I show you how!!
And here are those sweet ruffles again! I didn't want to do too many different designs during the class because the focus was really on the wax paper technique. So, I did the ruffles again (see the pink ones HERE) and made them all a solid color...no alternating colors. It just shows you how versatile this ruffle design is. You can make it work for lots of styles and lots of designs! And, by changing the color, you can get a very soothing/subtle effect. Wouldn't this be amazing in all white on a wedding cake! Oh my!
I just wanted to thank all my friends out there for taking this Craftsy class and being SOOO encouraging!! My heart is to share and to help, so I'm so thankful you are all gleaning great info from it that is helping you!! I hope it's been another tool in your cake decorating kit!! And remember it's 50% off only here on Jessicakes!! :)
God has been so good to me and I'm so thankful He has allowed me to use this platform to share the talents He's given me! Praise you Jesus! - for I am fearfully and wonderfully made!! Thank you for blessing me beyond what I deserve!! To you be ALL the glory!!
Best wishes sweet friends!!
